Ella Polat Hi! This summer I will be volunteering with East African Playgrounds in Uganda. I will be covering flights, participation and visa costs myself, earned through waitressing and private tutoring, but on top of this I have also been challenged to fundraise at least £800 to help bring the gift of play to some of the world's most disadvantaged children. While in Uganda I will be living and volunteering within a local community to help transform a school by building a new playground from start to finish with a team of trained Ugandan builders and welders. In addition to this I will also be assisting on a creative play programme to inspire children at the school to learn, explore and develop new physical, cognitive and social skills.

Here are some examples of what you can fund with a donation:
- £25 could provide an Interactive Play Area in a playground
- £50 could provide one week of Arts and Play sessions
- £100 could pay to employ a Community Staff member for one month

Please help me reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can - any donation would mean a lot to me! Thank you for helping me in making sure every child can access their right to a childhood. Ella Polat
